The New Angry Birds Trailer Finally Makes The Movie Look Like The Game… Also, There's One Very Fowl Pee Joke…

| Filed under: Film FlickersBlake SheltonMaya RudolphBirdsStuff 4 KidzJason SudeikisPeter Dinklage

This… doesn't look as awful as it should.

When we first heard that they were making a movie version of Angry Birds, our initial reaction was that Hollywood had officially lost its mind.

Well, the second trailer for the popular video game dropped Tuesday night and now that we can finally see the plot of the movie, it actually looks pretty fun!

Video: Meet The Hatchlings Of The Angry Birds Movie!

As you probably imagined, the movie will follow Jason Sudeikis' Red as he is forced to overcome his temper to save his naive feathered brethren from the kleptomaniacal pigs, but at least now we have confirmation this won't just be a two-hour clip of birds flying into blocks.

Make sure to catch Jason alongside Peter Dinklage, Maya Rudolph, Blake Shelton, Kate McKinnon, Keegan-Michael Key, Tony Hale, Bill Hader, Josh Gad, Danny McBride, and even Smosh when Angry Birds flies into theaters May 20!

Also, there's a legit water sports scene… which seems like an odd choice for a children's movie. LOLz!

Ch-ch-check out the second official Angry Birds trailer (above)!!!

Maya Rudolph Breaks Down After A Shocking Discovery About Her Slave Ancestors On Finding Your Roots — See What Brings Her To Tears!

When Maya Rudolph appeared on PBS' genealogy show Finding Your Roots, she wanted to establish an identity.

But the Saturday Night Live veteran found out so much more after discovering her slave ancestors' history in Tuesday's episode.

The 43-year-old, who is the daughter of late soul singer Minnie Riperton and music composer Richard Rudolph, admitted to host Henry Louis Gates Jr. she grew up "feeling a little orphaned by the idea of my heritage."

But that all changed when the actress was presented with an 1860 Kentucky document that detailed the 32 slaves owned by John Warren Grigsby.

Rudolph made the shocking discovery when she saw her maternal ancestor listed only by his gender and age: five years old.

After the realization, she broke down at the thought of her own daughter Lucille Anderson — who turned six in November — having to suffer the same fate as her ancestor.

Check out the emotional clip (below) and watch the episode to see the journeys of Rudolph, Shonda Rhimes, and Keenan Ivory Wayans on Tuesday at 8 p.m. EST on PBS!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters today, and Tina Fey and Amy Poehler couldn't give a f*ck!

That's because the comedy duo's new film Sisters is opening too!
